We ordered the folded chicken pesto pizza, the pepperoni and a chopped salad. All were fantastic. I have had my share of pizza from Italian (original) to stylish Cali pizza and this was a bit of the stylish kind, but the true flavors of a well made original italian. The place was hoping and all of the food looked delicious... More

This is obviously a hangout for locals - and a great little place for those staying at the Doubletree and other hotels in Little Tokyo/Downtown. It is warm, cozy, great craft brews on tap, and great pizza! We also tried the pasta and chicken meatballs. If I had to do it again, I would avoid the chicken meatballs, but the... More

We ordered: HEIRLOOM TOMATO PIE $10 Local Heirloom Tomatoes / Local Ricotta / Cherry Tomato Salad / Sweet Basil PITFIRE... More

Not many restaurants in this area of Downtown LA and the food and service was really good so we ate here twice. Their Brussell Sprout and Bacon pizza caught our eye but we opted for the Chopped Salad with Chicken and the pepperoni pizza.We also shared the chicken pizza one night. Both were great. Had my first cucumber and mint... More

I have driven by this location many times and not really paid attention due to lack of parking. A friend took me to lunch and I am huge fan. When I walked in there was a pasta dish and salad waiting to be sent to a table. We ordered a personal size pizza and the chicken & mushroom cavatappi. It... More

We're pizza snobs, having had some of the best in Italy, New York, New Haven, Providence and, of course, Chris Bianco's place in Phoenix. This place is our favorite in Los Angeles because you can walk in and get a damned good pie for about 10 bucks...which is what one ought to pay (pizza in Italy costs about half what... More
